Overview

Anora, the shepherdess, finds a half-naked man in her bed, so what's a woman living alone in a cottage in the Lowlands of Scotland supposed to do? Prod him with her pitchfork to chase him off! Only the man is not just a traveler seeking her bed for a rest-but a wounded Highlander, who fights back, swinging his sword!

Niall MacNeill is searching for a Frenchwoman of nobility to escort to his cousin's castle for safekeeping, when he and his friend, Gunnolf, are attacked by another Highland clan, seeking the same woman. The other Highlanders wish to sell her to the highest bidder-English or French-it does not matter.

Niall takes refuge in a sheepherder's cottage to heal up from his wounds and discovers the shepherdess taking care of him may very well be the woman he seeks. He has no intention of doing anything but what his cousin requests of him-ensure her safety on their way to Craigly Castle-but when the lass so bravely wields her pitchfork at him, he is thinking of other, more interesting possibilities.

“Is tú mo ghrá, Anora,” Niall said, kissing her cheek. “You are my love.” THE HIGHLANDER by Terry Spear is an awesome Scottish romance and another incredible read from Terry! She is one talented author competently writing multiple genres and I relish her tales! THE HIGHLANDER is the fifth book in her Highlanders series, but it can be easily read as a standalone. I will confess that I LOVE highlander romances. I have wanted to read this book since I read the synopsis: A shepherdess who finds a half-naked man in her bed and prods him with a pitchfork to chase him away? Oh my! I was NOT disappointed! This book is everything I thought it would be and more! My full review has been posted to Reading Between the Wines Book Club.

A delightful historical romance, The Highlander was a lovely read. With wonderfully sweet romance and the thrill of danger, this book was fantastic and I really liked it. Anora was a strong heroine. In the midst of all the chaos, she never backed down and kept up with her highland warrior just fine. She was a kind, likable character and I thought she was great. Niall was also wonderful. He was a formidable warrior, but also gentle and kind. He was very sweet, determined to protect Anora, and just adorable in general. I really liked him, as well. The romance was great. Anora and Niall were a lovely couple. They were both strong and determined to be together, despite the odds against them. And, there was definitely some heat there, as well. I thought they were perfect together. The plot was well paced and I was drawn in the entire way through. There was plenty of danger to keep things interesting. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was simply lovely. The Highlander was a wonderful historical romance that I really enjoyed. With romance, and the constant threat of danger, this book was a delight. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

New discovery for me! OMG I loved this beautiful love story, written by Terry Spear, titled The HIGHLANDER of her Highlanders series. It’s the first book that I read from her and it won’t be the last one. I think that I am now addicted to this author’s books! I loved this one because I found refreshing that her heroine Anora, is a shepherdess, a feisty and intelligent woman. She is a lady in control until she meets a wounded and half-naked man in her bed. The hero Niall is a rugged and handsome highlander with a kind heart who will try to discover her true identity and her secrets. It’s a Scottish adventure filled with tenderness, passion and action. Ms. Spear nicely blended her characters into this captivating story that is filled with elements a reader needs to find it interested until the end. Ms. Spear is a talented storyteller; I found it very well written and a delight to read. I highly recommend The HIGHLANDER especially if you love Scottish romances. Looking forward to read Gunnof’s story!
